Cincinnati bid needs thumbs-up from commissioners

Do we want the World Cup in Cincinnati?

The answer is a little more complicated than a cheerleading yes or a can’t-do no. It has a lot to do with how we see ourselves as a city. And even that notion can be skewed by more emotion than fact.

We’re one of 16 US cities vying for 10 spots for the 2026 Cup. FIFA will announce the winners June 16. The only catch is, Hamilton County commissioners have to approve the bid by Thursday. That is today.


There’s no middle ground on this one. You’re good with it, or you’re not.

I’ve read most everything I could find on the subject. Questions aren’t all answered.
